Excellent attention by friendly staff.. food came fairly quickly... delicious ... excellent value... we are visitors to Takapuna and have found meals in general are quite expensive. Aubergine with their 35.00 special for 3 course meal has set a standard few other establishments can compete with... thank you and well done!

We have been to Aubergine a few times with different people over the years and have never had a bad meal. The service is always friendly and with friends or family, lunch or dinner we have always enjoyed it.
